In the spirit of the upcoming holidays, Nicholas and his mom provided a Fun Friday snack for our class that had a little assembly required! The kids had a blast painting their ice cream cone Christmas tree with green icing and decorating their "tree" with lots of edible goodies. Thanks for making their treat so fun and delicious!
Our class was fortunate to have Mason's big brother, Jake come to our class and share his talent with us. He brought in his saxophone and played some Christmas songs for the kids. They got to sing along and then ask him questions about learning to play an instrument. Thanks so much Jake!!

I feel so fortunate to have parents who are willing to come read to my students 15 minutes before our school day officially begins. It is usually a hectic, crazy time for me getting last minute preparations ready for the day. What a wonderful gift for my students to have a morning reader begin their day with a book! These readers are simply parents who want to share their gift of reading, interacting with students, and sometimes making them laugh and surprising them! Below is Mason's dad reading a holiday book to the students. Before he read the book, he pulled out his Santa costume and beard and hat from his bag and put it all on for the students. They were so excited! Thank you Mr. Owens and thank you to all of the parents who have volunteered as a morning reader for our class!
